Prom Hair Styles
Since we want prom to go as smoothly as you do, we have made a guide list of things for you to remember. First, choose if you are having your hair done at home or at the salon. Then read up on some tips to keep in mind, as well as hairstyles to consider.
Part your hair on top of your head to "glamour up" an ordinary hairstyle.
If your hair is dry, run conditioner (about a dime/nickel size depending on thickness of hair) through your hair to eliminate frizz. This really works and won't make your hair crispy like mouse or spray.
If you are not sure which products to use and you are on a budget, try Herbal Essence. It smells fabulous and works all hair types.
Bring a picture of the hairstyle you want, and know exactly what you are expecting.
Communicate with the stylist to make sure there are no misunderstandings.
Wear a button down shirt so you don't ruin all that hard work when you go to get dressed.
Expect to spend at least $30 - $65.
Don't stress out if it doesn't turn out exactly how you wanted it to.
STRAIGHT hair is in, but so are CURLS. Natural tone highlights are out. Instead, streak your tips or underneath of hair with a metallic purple, wine red or other loud color for the trendy retro look.
Prom is that one special night you want to remember as perfect, therefore your hair may become your worst enemy - if it is not already. So first off, you must remember "not to fret about the small stuff." If all else fails, straighten your hair for a sleek and glamorous look, wear a delicate headband with rhinestones, or tie your hair up and add babies breath to make it appear professional. Another popular fashion style that always works is the traditional French twist.
If you do not trust others with your hair or simply do not no what style to choose from, follow the guide below to find an always popular and do-able hairstyle.... not to mention easy - and best of all...cheap.
The CLASSIC girl will brush her hair back in a tight ponytail leaving a small section of the pony tail underneath. Wrap what was left out around the pony tail holder. Use bobby pins to secure the loose hair, but try to keep them hidden. Remember that the tighter the hair, the less you will have to spend time restyling later that night when you're having fun. Don't make the ponytail either too high or too low, and use a little bit of hair spray - sleek it down with your fingertips to decrease any flyways.
If you want to go for the GIRLIE look, start with a small part to the side. Brush your hair back and to the opposite side of the part (below your ears). Tie your hair back on the side with a cute ponytail holder that matches your dress, and let your hair fall over the front of your shoulders. You can brush out some of the hair from the top so that it is loose and has volume. For those that have layers, let the shorter ends fall loose but keep them all to one side.
ROMANTIC is always a popular look for prom. The traditional style is to pull half of your hair up form your ears to the top of your head. Tie the hair back in a ponytail and divide the hair into small or large section (whichever you prefer). Twist the sections and tie them up, leaving the tips loose to flutter. Then secure with bobby pins (the more the better, as long as they are concealed). Leave the rest of your hair hanging straight (use a straightening iron if your hair is naturally wavy or curly) and use conditioner to eliminate frizz.
